+ - FBI Overwhelmed with "solutions" to Encrypted Note->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Recently the FBI asked for the public's help in solving the encryption in a note linked to a man's murder. Well, they got so much "help", it has overwhelmed the agency's phone and email systems . Dan Olson, chief of the FBI's Cryptanalysis and Racketeering Records Unit (CRRU), urged potential code-breakers to send their tips via mail rather than sending emails or flooding phone lines. "We don't have the bandwidth to handle the emails we're getting," Olson told FoxNews.com on Thursday. "We're getting a bunch [of responses]." Suggested solutions range from a list of the dead man's medication schedule to instructions from a computer repair technician: "He is speaking to a computer tech on how to fix his computer," one message read."
